3/25 Recap: Catenacci gets helper; Armia shut out

In the OHL playoffs, Dan Catenacci notched an assist as Owen Sound lost in Sault Ste. Marie 5-3. The assist gives the speedy center four points (0+4) in the series' three games. Darnell Nurse ('13) scored his first playoff goal for the Greyhounds.The Attack hold a 2-1 series lead with the clubs remaining in Soo for Wednesday's game four.

Alex Lepkowski was plus-one with a fighting major as Barrie doubled Kingston 4-2. The rugged defender picked up the instigator and decision against Frontenacs forward Jean Dupuy, who finished a hard check on teammate Deven Rymarchuk. Ryan Kujawinski ('13) showed his nice release with his second goal of the playoffs to give the Fronts a 2-1 lead in the second period. The Colts will go for the four-game sweep Wednesday in Kingston.

Joel Armia was held without a shot in 15:48 of work as Assat was blanked by Karpat 5-0 in game four of their SM-Liiga first round series. Armia, whose icetime was off a bit thanks to three minor penalties (two for interference, one for hooking), will look to rebound with a better effort Wednesday when the Aces get another chance to closeout the first round series.
